Abstract

According to Piaget's theory, when students can identify the cognitive conflict of their experience (Piaget uses the term disequilibrium), it can motivate them to try solving the problem. If the existing cognitive structure works well, the students will reach an equilibration process to explain the newly acquired knowledge when they interact to their environment. When existing cognitive structures fail to react to new information, there is cognitive conflict that causes individuals to chase reeculibration through existing cognitive structures. The individual will move up to a higher level of equilibrium development after the accommodation process is carried out. Cognitive conflict is defined as a person's awareness of a mismatch between the cognitive structure possessed and the new information they have received. Hence, it is needed to present the results of a study of the profile of cognitive conflict in mathematics education majors IAIN Tulungagung in this article, that results can be used by teachers to make appropriate improvements to the conceptualization of students.
